"a new portal is opening, connecting your planet to the sun"
Now this is one for the sci fi writers. (Hi sis.) Except it's not fiction.
"...something will happen high overhead that until recently many scientists didn't believe in. A magnetic portal will open, linking Earth to the sun 93 million miles away. Tons of high-energy particles may flow through the opening before it closes again, around the time you reach the end of the page."
